Why the new `question` nodes?

Question and answer structures are literally older than the Socratic Method. Such a common semantic pattern deserves it's own keywords.

The below regex may help.

How do I use the new single word links?

For single word links in paragraph nodes only (for now) you can now do:

paragraph This is a linkπŸ”—example.com

Below is a regex for migrating existing *.scroll files.

<a href="https://([^"]+)">([^ ]+)</a> $2πŸ”—$1

How do I use the πŸ”—link tag with multiword links?

The πŸ”—link tag only supports single word links. Like everything with Scrolldown, you have a number of options if the conventional design doesn't work for you. Your options are:

Can I not include a page in the index page?

Now you can! Sometimes you just want to publish an independent page without including it in the index. To do that, just add skipIndexPage.
